Covid financial grants available from the MHT

The Michael Hardinge Trust exists to provide support to the educational needs of the young people of the village.  As we have now been living with the restrictions of Covid-19 for almost a year, the Trustees are concerned that the educational needs of some of our young people may have been affected by the pandemic.  Although we do not know how people may have been affected, the Trustees have now agreed to set aside some funds which can be provided as grants where lockdown measures may have had an adverse effect on educational progress.

If as a parent or young person you feel that education has suffered as a result of the pandemic, we are inviting you to apply for a special grant which may be of some help.  Funds are potentially available to anyone from the village who has not yet reached the age of 25 and who is in education or training.  This is in line with our policy on grants.  Funds may be limited, so apply as soon as you can.

You can apply in the usual way by letter to the Chairman of Trustees or via email to mhtinhorley@gmail.com.  Alternatively, if you would like to talk to someone confidentially to see how we may be able to help, please contact any one of the MHT Trustees. All applications will be treated in confidence.

If you want any other information about the work and aims of the Trust, further details are here

Coronavirus in Horley

The Horley Coronavirus Support Group is aware that there have been a number of cases of the virus in the village, so please take care and stay at home where possible.

On a brighter note, several Horley residents have received their first vaccine jab.  Hopefully the rest of the village will follow before too long.

In the meantime, stay safe, and remember the support group is here if you need any help.  We can be contacted by email horleycsg@gmail.com or phone 01295 738334 .

Horley Coronavirus Support Group is still here!

The Horley Coronavirus Support Group was set up in March 2020 to provide help with shopping,  prescription collection, dog walking and friendly phone calls to anyone in the village who needed it.  We know that many of you now have your own support networks in place, but as we have recently moved into Tier 4 and cases are rising in our area, if you do need any help, please get in touch as our volunteers are still available.  Email horleycsg@gmail.com or call 01295 738334 to contact us.

We’d also love to hear about anyone in the village who has had the vaccine – please let us know if and when you have and tell us how it went.  We are hoping that once enough people have been vaccinated, the village activities that had to be put on hold in 2020 will be able to resume.

In the meantime, whilst we are spending more time at home, the Ladies Guild have a selection of jigsaws available for loan.  Please email horleyladiesguild@gmail.com for more details.

 

 

 

 

Horley Santa (and his animal helpers) Light Parade

‘We’re really hoping to spread some Christmas cheer this year, and so have put some work into training our two shire horses to double up as Santa’s reindeer!  On the evening of Saturday 12th December, our two ‘reindeers’ will be travelling around Horley, with our very own Santa Claus to spread some festive cheer. ‘
